christian fisher has more from the scene near the intersection of woodland drive and flora lane from silver springs. >> first thing that i heard was just the gun shot. it was very rapid, you know, eight of them in a row, just bam, bam, bam. slid out of bed, stayed low. looked like the whole police department was outside. >> reporter: these three roommates woke up to police shooting a 22-year-old man just two hours after he made a bizarre phone call to 191. >> starting stating that he was armed, he wanted to kill himself or wanted to die, and he wanted the police to kill him. >> reporter: police tracked him to this home in silver springs, where his 23-year-old girlfriend was babysitting three kids overnight. >> we told the girlfriend, keep the door locked, stay away from the basement door and don't let them in. >> reporter: police were able to get the girlfriend and the kids out safe, through the front door, while trying to talk down her boyfriend, who was standing in a back stairwell.
